“In 1965 I left Collyhurst aged just sixteen from a three bed house with a tin bath, an outside toilet, no heat or hot water and a coal fire, to move to a four bedroom house – central heated, inside toilet and bathroom, with a massive kitchen. It was a palace! I felt dead posh!
I used to love this house! I used to torment my sister, pretending Bogie Sam would get her! It gave her nightmares. They got so bad that she started sleepwalking. She walked right out the house one night and the police brought her back at 3am – my mum didn’t even know she was gone!!” – Kath B
